Michael Fabbri

Michael Fabbri


Chortle Award Nominee 2012 - Best Club Comic

With a dark and honest approach to some of life’s more touchy subjects, Michael Fabbri manages to effortlessly slip between some harsh, controversial topics to light-hearted silliness to make for a refreshingly eclectic and brilliantly funny act.

Michael quickly stamped his mark on the UK circuit appearing in the 2003 final of Channel 4’s 'So You Think You’re Funny?' and rapidly earned a reputation as one of the most promising up and coming comedians on the circuit; a reputation that he is living up to, regularly performing for the best clubs in the country.

Michael supported Lucy Porter on her national Love In tour in 2008 and supported Micky Flanagan in 2011 at a selection of dates on 'The Out Out Tour'. He also travelled to Amsterdam to take part in the Toomler festival, with Keith Farnan.

Not only popular in the UK, Michael has also performed in Singapore, Dubai, Doha and Abu Dhabi.
